Dear Valued Business Partner,

When we set out plans for this website, with the idea of regular Blog updates for tips, and promotions, none of us had any idea that the very first post would need to be of such serious importance.

Marathon is proud to partner with our customers to provide top quality products. Thank you for your continued business for over 40 years, your loyalty is appreciated. Keeping our customers’ best interest in mind along with the safety of our employees, Marathon has re-trained and implemented additional precautionary steps recommended by the CDC and the WHO to help reduce and eliminate the spread of COVID-19. Fortunately, there have been no cases within our company and our community in Norfolk has not been directly affected at this time.

We will remain open with regular business hours. Should there be a change in operational hours, we will contact you immediately. Your understanding of any scheduling delays that may occur due to COVID-19 are greatly appreciated.

Please take care and stay healthy.

Sincerely,

The entire team at Marathon Press
